Buddy the Budget Car Rental mascot dog is going on the road on a mission to raise travel agent awareness of the new Avis Budget Group agent portal, Beep.
Buddy is reminding agents that Budget cars can now be booked in addition to Avis Car Rental through the trade with commission — and agents still have time to win a Fiat 500 in a booking incentive prize draw.
During the first phase of the incentive, Budget will be carrying out a mystery shopping audit and for the agents who successfully offer car hire and Buddy will be heading to agents’ desks in September.
The ‘Win a Fiat 500’ agent incentive sees every Avis or Budget agent booking entered into a prize draw, meaning the more bookings are made, the more chance they have of winning. A winner will be drawn after the incentive closes on 14 October 2017.
Buddy was introduced to the trade at the launch of Beep in June; Beep is a new website that brings together sister brands Avis Car Rental and Budget Car Rental on the same platform for one-stop shopping for travel professionals. The new portal also features destination and driving guides and training tools for agents.
